Century also has the M70's if your tastes go that way. I've had both the WASR and the M70 and both are really good riflers to me. Some don't liek the underfolder as much...I really like them though. I still miss my WASR though

Personaly,I would go for the Saiga.I would consider cost when comparing apples to apples.Going with the Saiga could save you a couple bills.In case there is a "SHTF" scenario,wouldn't you rather have the extra ammo?I mean,all in all,It's just as affective on the receiving end.

I agree completely. The savings will pay for a case of ammo from AmmoMan, or several ProMag magazines.

That's what I always thought. Even a friend of mine who had never seen a Saiga before said "Looks and sounds just like an AK."

I had both a siaga and a AK. the only difference is the Saiga hand guard is different and the trigger group and butt stock is different placement. otherwise the action and receiveris all AK. You can get a Saiga for 300$ and do a conversion for about 120$ if you are technically inclined.

I dont know how to start my own thread yet so I'll ask here....I have a saga 7.62 issue and need assistance.. Can anyone help? My rifle won't cycle at all...the bolt won't fully rotate and close after trying to chamber a round... The carrier stays open about a quarter inch. It closes fine when not chambering a round...and I've tried it with and without the bullet guide...this is a fully converted saiga

Inspect the chamber and the gas tube, clean if necessary. Try another magazine just in case.

AK or Saiga Rifle? - Auto & Semi-Auto Discussion

I love my Saiga IZ132Z wouldn't trade for the world. 7.62x39 uses ak mags and came from rwc converted. Has a bolt hold open and just need to thread the barrel I love this gun

Buy a Yugo (M70, or NPAP) you will not regret it.

Given today's political climate - on any import semi auto anything - buy it TODAY

I would start with cleaning everything thoroughly, including the chamber. Take the bolt out of the carrier and clean everything that rotates and slides, then grease it all lightly. Check the gas tube and piston for obstructions. Your recoil spring could b worn out, replace it if cleaning doesn't help. Was the gun purchased brand new and had this problem out of the box?
